I've been reflecting on what the most surprising learnings I've had, working at well-known tech "unicorns" like Skype, Skyscanner, Uber. Here is a list, as I'm writing up these reflections in more detail. pic.twitter.com/KZzuTOu8nV — Gergely Orosz (@GergelyOrosz) April 26, 2020 via https://twitter.com/GergelyOrosz

Basketball as therapy for Parkinson's disease. Why does this work? Nobody really knows. All of our best answers to date fall short.

It is empty when politicians call for healing and peace without stating antiracist policies they want to institute. Words bring momentary healing and peace. Policy change brings lasting healing and peace by rooting out the racism suffocating so many people. We want to breathe. — Ibram X. Kendi (@DrIbram) June 3, 2020 via https://twitter.com/DrIbram

There are known strategies to reduce police violence. In the past, the federal government has been empowered to investigate local departments and force them to adopt these strategies and reform. It works: when they do, police shootings go way down. https://t.co/QaKuX8sI0K — Rob Arthur (@No_Little_Plans) June 1, 2020 via https://twitter.com/No_Little_Plans

Race science is not just a pseudoscience, it is the intellectual framework upon which our modern-day racial categories are built. It underpins the structural racism of our institutions. It is the toxin inside our minds, and the minds of too many of our leaders. — Angela Saini (@AngelaDSaini) June 3, 2020 via https://twitter.com/AngelaDSaini

As a consequence, ultra-processed information is even more difficult to resist than ultra-processed food, because the reward comes from the pleasure of consuming the information *and* the pleasure of being praised for making and sharing it. — Alan Levinovitz (@AlanLevinovitz) June 9, 2020 via https://twitter.com/AlanLevinovitz

It struck me a few years ago, sitting there reading some book, as my mind began to wander, that the crucifixion of Jesus is one of those things about the Christian faith that (1) I don’t really understand, and (2) seems vitally important to understand. https://t.co/2FhN5Fi0J6 — Peter Enns (@peteenns) April 17, 2019 via https://twitter.com/peteenns

Christianity’s opening public move, so to speak, was an act of humiliation, shame, and defeat, unworthy of any of the gods. https://t.co/2FhN5Fi0J6 — Peter Enns (@peteenns) April 17, 2019 via https://twitter.com/peteenns

You could make a case that this was Lucy's 2nd attempt to hold the football still, as this attempt took place in the early 1950s. But in the 1979 strip, she seemed well intentioned (for once). pic.twitter.com/5MxmizqxwA — Tom Heintjes (@Hoganmag) August 2, 2019 via https://twitter.com/Hoganmag
